PROGRAM * Summer Soccer Camps

Posted by Lee Spooner on 6/25/2021

The YMCA of Southeastern NC Athletic Department is excited to announce the Camp line up for 2021!

Hello YMCA Sports Family,

 

As summer quickly approaches I wanted to give you a list of upcoming programs.  We have summer long training programs with Y Staff-Coaches, 3 different types of soccer camps, flag football camps  and even a residential soccer camp at Camp Kirkwood.  If after reviewing the information below you have further information please let me know.   Lee.Spooner@ymcasenc.org

 

SUMMER DAY CAMPS  (Soccer & Flag Football)

2021 Sports Camps will be held at the YMCA at 2710 Market Street.  We chose this location due to the amount of shade around the field, misting system and access to the pools.  TO MY MID-TOWN FAMILIES: We would look into morning transportation from Mid-Town YMCA to Market Street YMCA if there was interest so please let me know so that I can start a list of contacts.  TO MY LELAND FAMILIES: I have scheduled camps in Leland in the past and if there is a week everyone would like please reach out.

MOST ASKED QUESTIONS:
Q:  What happens if there is adverse weather?
A:  For light weather we will stay on-site and move to the Cottage for more severe weather children will move to the gym.
 
Q:  Will my camper need a bathing suit or towel.  
A:  Only Full Day campers will be swimming.  Other campers will get wet from misting system but dry fast.
 
Q:  Where do I drop-off / pick-up my child?
A:  At the YMCA Field, at the back of the YMCA at 2710 Market Street you will see our fields, there is a snack bar.  THAT’S THE SPOT.   
 
Q:  Who can pick-up my child?
A:  If a parent will not be picking up your child please communicate with me via email at Lee.Spooner@ymcasenc.org with the specifics.  DO NOT LEAVE A MESSAGE AT THE Y, I will not get that as I am on the fields with your kids but I do have access to emails.
 
Q:  What should we expect from camp?
A:  YMCA Soccer Coaching Staff will work with players on three main objectives which are for each child to have fun, build on self-esteem and learn fundamentals of soccer.
 
Q:  Do you apply sunscreen?
A:  Campers should arrive with sunscreen on.  Those full-day campers will reapply after lunch.  PLEASE put your name on the sunscreen.  If a camper does not have sunscreen I will provide some (I use Banana Boat SPF 30 or 50 in the lotion form.)  We DO NOT apply the sunscreen but do supervise to make sure they apply it.
 
Q:  Lunch & Snacks
A:  We only offer one selection in our lunches.  If you have allergies, special diets or picky eaters, please have your camper bring a packed lunch.  We have a refrigerator at the field.  
 
Q:  Can I get a hold of someone at the field if needed?
A:  If you need to get a hold of me the best option is to email me at Lee.Spooner@ymcasenc.org.  I do not keep my phone on me but check message’s hourly.  Messages left at the office do not get to me until the next day.
